Designer Handbags – Complementing Me In all Sense

Friday, September 30th, 2011

designer handbagsThere is always something about designer handbags that unfailingly catches every woman’s fascination. As for me, I have always been their aficionado. Well, it’s not purely because of the highly regarded and fashionable brands they stand for; but also because of the quality, as well as the beautiful and intricate details on every stitch made. Apart from these, through my very own observation, modern women have become so perceptive especially when it comes to fashion. A mom-at-home who walks about with a perfect touch of makeup, stylish outwear and stilettos and at the same time carrying a famous designer handbag could be a successful businesswoman in the eyes of everyone who sees her – optical illusion?

Designer stuff mysteriously gives the wearer some sense of confidence. It is also true that whenever we women see another elegant one carrying a handbag, our eyes would involuntarily scan for the label it bears – try to deny it but you very well know you’ve done it before. So no matter how costly a designer bag may be, I still think its purchase is worthwhile. After all, what is the use of purchasing one at a lesser price but only usable within a few months due to its mediocre quality? Thus, the idea of being calculative in choosing something from the fashion world does not appeal to me. Thrifty is one thing, after all I don’t want to spend all my hard earned money striving after materialism. However, I too do not want to be thrifty on giving out positive impressions about myself to others.

For example, the unordinary handbag shapes designed by James Piatt; ranging from handguns to an animal being roasted as in tribal movies, I initially thought he was not going far with them. He did. This makes me conclude that if fashion were to be predictable, there wouldn’t be any thrill to it. I guess we all have no choice but to keep our minds open at all the possibilities fashion and fad could offer us with.

They always come with sleek classiness embodied in convoluted designs that somehow present the wearer with a sense elegance and a touch of comfort when carrying it around. Donna Karan New York (DKNY) is another favorite designer of mine. While Burberry promises elegance, DKNY guarantees sophistication amidst casualness. I’d probably have a Burberry in my closet and reserve it for special occasions, but DKNY handbags can be worn at anytime in a day without reservations. So whether I’m donning a skinny jean with a simple top, a Women’s DKNY Purse Handbag T&C Turnlock Large Cross Body Brown such as the one displayed on will complement my beauty in a unique way; making me noticeable at all times.

Best Designer Brands – Every Woman’s Fascination

designer brandsWell, it’s quite tricky to make out and conclude which are the best designer brands since every design is distinctive in its own way. However, everyone has one’s own preferences and so do I.  Since I have quite much of a free time to jot down something on this topic, I am going to do just that – my little thoughts on the best designer brands.

designer brandsI recall the time when I was still in my teen years, my friends and I used to converse about anything revolving around makeup and boys. However, now that I’m all grown up, I’m quite surprised that conversations with my acquaintances about fashion do not revolve on what we think will catch the interests of the opposite gender; rather, on what will make us women look as professionally elegant as we could. So, there we’d be, talking about designer shoes, designer bags, and all other designer stuffs – although I have to admit that the reason of our discussion could be because of pure admiration, or the competitive feeling to outwit the others in terms of fashion knowledge, or worst, wanting to make a showy display of what we could purchase. Women!

Whatever the case is, I believe every woman admires designer stuffs. Back from where I come from, one could easily get imitations of products from designer brands. Not all brands, though. Only certain ones like Gucci, Chanel, Prada and Louis Vuitton. Well, we know that these designer brands produce a wide array of handbags, so I always prefer handbags by other designer brands because it’s kind of hard to distinguish whether someone is wearing the original or faux. I personally do not want to spend hundreds on a designer stuff that looks like one bought for a few dollars. With this in mind, I prefer designer brands that are less known to people in general, but are mostly circulated in the fashion world.

My recent favorites are something from Liz Claiborne and DKNY. Then again, best designer brands differ between products. In terms of clothing, I always feel that Gucci, Burberry as well as Chanel have a lot to offer. Ranging from designs that are chic with a touch of avant-garde, I can’t help but to welcome a number of them from these brands into my wardrobe.  In the world of handbags and shoes, Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin have really come up with sophisticated elegance in all their designs, making available a broad selection of formal to casual hangout wears. I like Michael Kors too. I always feel his designs are on par with the leading designer brands and needless to mention, he’s one of the judges on my long-time favorite fashion show – Project Runway. In terms of make-ups, Dior and Loreal Paris have definitely gained their spot among the world’s renowned make-up artists and mass marketed many of them.

The list is too long, I guess. I believe the best designer brands in the world of haute couture are always subjective to the eyes of the beholder since many brands are on the rise and have given way to a great number of appealing designs. Whatever the case is, I truly find Women’s DKNY Purse Handbag T&C Modern Chino/Brown displayed on irresistible – to purchase or not to purchase?
